The meaning of obedience / obey in dream | Dream Interpretation
To be obedient, in the spiritual sense, suggests an acceptance of the principle of the greater good, and the recognition that our individual struggles are a necessary part of our development.
Psychological / emotional perspective: If we find ourselves in the position of being obedient to someone we know in an unexpected situation, we can often expect to have an easier relationship with them in the future; perhaps because we are able to acknowledge them in a different way.
Material aspects: When in dreams we expect obedience from someone, we are acknowledging our own power and authority over others.
To dream of having to be obedient to others indicates we are aware of their greater authority and knowledge, and also that a degree of disempowerment has occurred.
